Bigger wage increase for PT's still under progression?

    If I'm understanding this right, someone with less than one year seniority (90+ days) will go from making $9.50 to $10.70 on August 1st? $0.50 from the new progression and $0.70 from the GWI?

    Not hating on rookies BTW, just trying to get my facts straight. I think it's about time that the starting wage was something decent. Thanks.

    As I posted in another thread:

    (*these figures do not include the $1 premium, which will be maintained)

    Old Progression
    * start: $8.50
    * after 90 days: $9.50
    * after 1 year: $10
    * after 2 years: $10.50
    * after 3 years: $11
    * after 4 years: $11.87

    New Progression:
    * start: $10
    * after 1 year: $10.50
    * after 2 years: $11
    * after 3 years: $12
    * after 4 years: $12.50

    What does this mean?
    PTers who've been with the company less than three years will see adjustments to their wages (everybody else follows the general wage increase):

    -- PTers who've been with the company less than one year will be bumped from $9.50 to $10.20 on August 1, then $10.50 on their first anniversary. They will follow the general wage increases, but be bumped from $11.90 to $12 on their third anniversary.

    --PTers who've been with the company less than two years will be bumped to $10.70 on August 1, then $11.00 on their first anniversary. They will then follow the general wage increases.

    -- PTers who've been with the company less than three years will be bumped to $11.20 on August 1, then $12.00 on their third anniversary. They will then follow the general wage increase.

    So if you've been here between two & three years, you're the winner this contract.

    -- Incumbent PTers with less than three years BENEFIT from the wage progression in seeing immediate wage increases.

    -- New hires will follow the wage progression whereas incumbent PTers will receive the general wage increases. While the wage progression is stronger in the early years -- which BENEFITS incumbent employees, ultimately the general wage increases reign. Thus incumbent employees hired in today will be earning $13.40 by the end of the contract, whereas new hires in three months will receive only $12.50.

    Part-Time Wages
    The International Union announced that part-time wages are going up by $1.50. But the real increase is only 50 cents.
    That's because the $1 raise that you get after 90 days in the present contract has been eliminated. In the proposed contract, part-timers don't get their first increase until the one-year mark. Plus $1.50 and minus $1.
    Is a 50¢ increase worth the hoopla

    I'm confused as to why you'd believe $11, but there's nothing to disagree with.

    -- New employees are hired at $8.50 to start, increasing to $9.50 after 90-days.
    -- Per the contract, on August 1, these employees will receive a 70c raise, therefore seeing their wage increase to $10.20.
    -- The progression scale guarantees employees with less than one year $10. At $10.20, they're above this floor.
    -- Per the contract, once these employees reach 1-year, they're guaranteed $10.50, therefore their pay will be adjusted.
    -- On August 1, 2014, these employees will receive another 70c raise, seeing their wage increase to $11.20.
    -- On their second anniversary, the contract guarantees them $11.00. They are above this floor.
    -- On August 1, 2015, these employees will be bumped to $11.90.
    -- On their third anniversary, the contract guarantees them $12.00. Their pay will be adjusted accordingly.
    Further wage increases are above the progression scale, thus these employees will follow the general wage increase.

    LOL. I was thinking as a preloader... If you notice, I removed my post before you finished posting this. Your post is correct for those hired at the lower rate.
